TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A University of Kansas program plans to begin offering classes in January at the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site in Topeka.

The university had housed the administrative operations for its Public Management Center at a different Topeka site, where it also offered professional development classes for public sector employees. But after the decision was made to move the administrative operations to the Lawrence campus, the university started looking for a new place to offer the classes.

Alecia Gray of the School of Public Affairs and Administration says the Brown site's Topeka location was attractive. Many of the state employees the program serves work in the capital city.

The Brown site tells the story of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that declared segregated schools unconstitutional.
